Meet The Team.
Tucker Mullin felt the same passion his co-founder Tom did for hockey, following his desire to skate from prep school to the Junior A level and eventually landing at Saint Anselm College. Tucker and Tom met the first time as opponents on the ice when Tom played for the Pingree School and Tucker skated for Phillips Andover Academy. A strong friendship between them developed when the two became teammates at the Junior A level.
When Tom suffered his first accident, Tucker made a personal commitment to support Tom as a friend and teammate. He also witnessed his friend’s challenges and frustrations firsthand, especially the need to travel to Miami for medical care. Following Tom’s second injury, he and Tucker founded the Thomas E. Smith Foundation. Tucker started the organization with Tom to help a close friend. As the organization grew, Tucker realized he was not only helping support Tom, but the entire spinal cord injury community.
Tucker has been actively involved in community service efforts for many years. For his dedication to community service and work with the Foundation, Tucker was recognized as the 2013 Hockey Humanitarian Award recipient, the award that is given annually to “College Hockey’s Finest Citizen”. He was also the recipient of the Paul S. Coleman Outstanding Service Leadership Award presented by Saint Anselm College, and the J. Thom Lawler Award presented by Bauer and the Eastern Massachusetts Hockey Officials Association.
Throughout his playing career at Saint Anselm College, where he graduated with a BA in Financial Economics, Tucker was a two-time team captain on the Men’s Hockey team and became the 22nd member of the Hawks’ 100-point club. In 97 career games, Tucker had 49 goals and 55 assists for 104 points, 19th all-time in school history. He was also a member of 4-straight NE-10 Championship teams, a school record. . Tucker currently resides in Boston, MA.
